Pimp My Yarn (and my new project bag too!)
I am sorry to tell you that I have lost the card of the woman I bought this bag from. It is unfortunate, because it is a great bag and it was a great deal! The ripstop fabric is the ticket. The sock monkeys are pretty awesome too.
This little scarflet is a free pattern that my friend Sue found on Ravelry. Pimpelliese
. I do believe it is an unfortunate name, but a charming knit. The yarn was purchased at Shepherd's Harvest from a local producer called Enchanted Meadows
. It is an Alpaca/Mohair blend in the Blueberry colorway.
And the wonderful basket that it is draped upon is my favorite purchase from Shepherd's Harvest last weekend.
I bought this basket from a little booth called Ghana Crazy
. Go ahead and check out the website. I have a few of these similar baskets and they are so perfect for so many things. One of them holds my gardening tools and gloves. I have another at the cabin for my needlework projects. You should really read the history of this little business - I can't think of a group of people more deserving of my business!
In other news. We had a great (rainy, of course) weekend of Lacrosse. Puck's team won their final two, regular season games to finish first in their league (MBSLA Freshman/Sophomore HS). The High School season runs in the Spring, unlike the Youth (grades 3-8) season which runs from the end of May through the end of July. Playoff seeding take place on Sunday, and the games begin this week. I'm thinking they'll get a first round bye! All I know is that it has been raining for all but one weekend of their games. My spiritwear is perpetually soggy, a sad state of affairs, I know.
